The Lynx, the two-time defending Western Conference champions, will begin their 15th season in the WNBA on June 1 at Target Center against the Connecticut Sun.

Their 34-game schedule was announced Wednesday. Eleven of the Lynx's 17 home games have weekend dates. They will be on national TV twice: July 9 against the Atlanta Dream and Aug. 24 against the Indiana Fever, whom the Lynx lost to in last year's WNBA Finals.

The WNBA's 17th season begins on May 24 and ends on Sept. 15.
